Sergei Diaghilev

Tata Naka SS14

Sergei Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes influenced the artistic and graphic pieces of the Tata Naka Spring/Summer 2014 Collection.

Another Sergei Diaghilev-inspired collection : MaxMara Resort 2014 (Sergei Diaghilev’s « The Rite of Spring » production was the starting point of this collection).

To read about Ballets Russes-inspired collections, search for the « Ballets Russes » post that I published on January 14, 2012.

      Thank you so very much ! I love it when there’s a magical interaction between fashion and ballet ! No wonder the biggest couturiers (Christian Lacroix, Coco Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld, Jean Paul Gaultier, Riccardo Tisci …) who have created costumes for ballet productions have also taken inspiration from such a beautiful art !

      Thank you !!! They made some dance-inspired fashion “jewels” indeed ! A queen needs a king, and, to me, the king of fashion / dance collaborations is Jean Paul Gaultier’s stunning work for Régine Chopinot’s modern ballets !

    Definitely a dress worthy of wearing to the theater! I love the bubblegum pink/turquoise colors and the cut-out shoulders.
